This version of the cold hardy Opuntia Santa Rita originated at Bach's Cactus Nursery. We also found it is called Durango. It has large flat pads with minimal spines and lean more towards pink than purple. The flowers are an awesome blush pink colour and appear in the spring. It enjoys full sun and minimal water to get the most colour on the pads. You are selecting one pad. Handle with caution as the spines have barbed tips and the glochids irritate. We use tongs to handle Opuntia and other prickly pear cactus.

This spread of Durango is about six feet wide.
